The Transgender Assistance Program of Virginia (TAP VA) along with ODU SAGA (Sexuality and Gender Alliance), ODU Gay Cultural Studies, New Life Metropolitan Community Church, LGBT Life Center, PFLAG of Norfolk/South Hampton Roads, Stonewall Sports Norfolk, Hampton Roads Pride, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia are pleased to announce the second annual Hampton Roads Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) on March 31, 2019.
TDOV will be held at Old Dominion University, Mills Godwin Building, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will showcase and celebrate the art and expression of local transgender and gender non-conforming artists in honor of International Transgender Day of Visibility. Event address is provided below.
Hampton Roads’ TDOV will celebrate all forms of art, talent, visibility, and celebration of transgender and gender non-conforming persons. TAP VA believes that art and creativity are natural expressions of life and that every transgender and gender non-conforming person in the area has something to offer our community.
The Hampton Roads TDOV seeks to exemplify how the transgender community is thriving in spite of political setbacks and a rise in hate crimes. Members of the community will highlight their art and talents and join the international day to spread love and knowledge of transgender issues to the public.
At the Hampton Roads’ TDOV, anyone with a creative spirit is invited to participate and create art. Transgender and gender non-conforming youth are also welcomed and encouraged to participate in this family friendly event.
Transgender artists are warmly invited to display their skills and art, including transgender individuals who run their own local businesses and transgender performers (poetry/spoken word/dance/music/etc.) Space will also be provided for transgender teachers to lead small group activities such as face painting, nail designs, photography, and creative writing.
Organizers of this event are seeking volunteers and artists to participate. If you are interested in displaying your work or volunteering, contact the Transgender Assistance Program of Virginia via Facebook HERE, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
